With that infamous court case hanging over his head for the alleged scuffle in the Bigg Market recently, certain individuals 'in the know', told us on Wednesday that Carroll is seriously thinking of leaving the area.
Chris Hughton kept a low profile when the incident happened, but we believe he was furious with his striker, and some believe the club would listen to offers this transfer window.
Carroll is a star in the making, and sure to make his mark in the Premiership ... either with us or some other club.
And the £2m being offered by Wolves and Bolton is a drop in the ocean to what he will be worth in a couple of seasons.
Carroll, who was 20 last week, has impressed several Premier League managers and scouts in his first full season, even though he has scored only four goals in Newcastle’s promotion charge.
After failing to land Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford after his £1.5m bid was turned down, Newcastle could do a lot worse than hang onto what they already have.
Is Beckford better than Carroll?
